Hi Everyone,

 

I am new to the group and am getting married at the GBP on November 26, 2014.

 

We booked the Pisces Restaurant and were quoted $2500.00 which included the alcohol service only until dinner was finished being served.  After that we were quoted $16 per person/hour for the open bar.  We asked if we could have rum punch and were told that it would cost us extra.  We also asked if they could provide pop and juice for us if we bring our own alcohol and were told told that there is a $15/bottle corkage fee if we bring our own alcohol.

 

Just wondering if anyone else was quoted a corkage fee?

 

We are also taking our own decorations down with us and were told that they would set everything up for us but it will cost us a "set up fee".  Has anyone else come across this?

 

Thanks

    Yes I also was quoted the 15 for corkage fee.
    I wasn't told about a set up fee but I only have my own table overlays and chair ties and a table gift.
    It seems they are realizing how to get around some of fees so they are adding fees for that to.
    I had vinnette but apparently shes gone now. She said they would wave day pass for rashel but new lady told be....please be advised there is a 75 charge for rashel and her assistant! No way im paying 150. I would have never booked her in that case! Its only 140 for my hair and makeup!!

      Hi, I'm just new to this fourm. Getting married in May 2015.  I currently have the Pisces rented for the reception and just wondering a few things -

       

      -What happens if the weather is bad?

       

      -Do they provide any decorations for the tables?

       

      -After seeing a few blogs and brides had lanterns with light sin them, if we bring the lanterns will the decorators supply the lights??

       

      **Also, has anyone booked a time a year in advance and was put on the cancellation list for another time.  We are currently booked in for 11:00 because the whole week is booked, and they said they would out me on the cancellation list for an afternoon ceremony.  Don't know how this will go though!

       

      Thanks :)

        Hi Brides! Does anyone know how a marriage certificate works from Jamaica to Ontario? Do we need to get married here first? =)
        Thanks for your help!

          I was wondering if any brides have asked for Vegan meals at the wedding reception.

           

          We are only having about 20 guests, and about half of them don't eat meat, fish or dairy.

           

          I am thinking of doing one Vegan menu for everyone.

           

          Any suggestions?

           

          Thanks!!

          Not at all. We got married there nearly 3 years ago, and were both divorced as well. Your marriage is completely legal and your certified certificate will suffice to do everything you want to do for name change, etc.

           

          We had to wait a few weeks for the original, I think about 8 weeks. They gave us a photocopy of the marriage register to bring home with us, which will get your ball rolling but for the heavy duty stuff like credit cards or anything legal, you need to wait for your actual marriage certificate. We actually received 2 but I don't know if they're still doing that or not.


          I said "yes" again to the love of my life at Grand Coral Beach Club, Playa del Carmen, Mexico on our 4th anniversary - October 20, 2015

            Hi ladies
            Looking for someone that may be able to calm my nerves.

            I have booked the GBP for my wedding Oct 24th 2014 we have also reserved the Pisces restaurant for private reception

            I have had lots of trouble communicating with the resort. At first they said deposit required now have said payment when I get there???
            I'm feeling like there's no wedding on the other end
            Have no idea about what's going on!!

              Hi Eryka,

               

              Maybe I'll see you there!  We are getting married on the 21st of October.  I have had pretty good communication with the resort...but there are times it takes several days to get a response. Also, when I do get a response, some of the questions are answered and the others ignored.  I have read over and over again about brides being worried and then everything came together for the wedding.

               

              I was told to bring all the money to the resort...no deposit required.  

               

              Try not to stress.  Easier said than done I know!
